Academic Knowledge


Work from home

Do you have a passion for criminology and want to share your hard earned knowledge with others, making money at the same time but still working at your own pace and in your own time?

Academic Knowledge are searching for graduates of criminology to add to their already established pool of over 1000 active researchers.

Providing that you have at least an undergraduate degree in criminology with a 2:1, you could start writing and earning with Academic Knowledge within just a few days. 


We require all our researchers to have a recognised university degree to at least a 2:1 level.

The higher the level of your own qualification, the higher the level of brief you can bid on, with work at Masters level securing higher fees than Undergraduate and work at an Upper First undergraduate level receiving more than that at a 2:2.

It is not just English legal qualifications that are of interest to Academic Knowledge as we regularly receive requests for work from US, Australian and South East Asia jurisdictions. So if your qualification is from such an oversea institution, please do get in touch.

To be eligible to apply for this vacancy you must have:

  1. A minimum of a 2:1 undergraduate degree or equivalent (60%+)
  2. Excellent written English skills


As this role is freelance, the earnings are based upon the hours worked, the standard of work completed and the number of words written each day. You can use the calculator to gain an idea of the rates of pay we are able to obtain for you.
